Paillard Switzerland, New Ribbon Fitted, Full Working Order

Great example of the iconic Hermes Baby typewriter in vintage used condition. The body of the typewriter is grey/green metal with fab green keys and a grey/green metal carry case with green handle.

The Hermes Baby Typewriter was originally designed in the 1930s by famed Italian designer Giuseppe Presioso for E. Paillard & Company, This model is a re-vamped design which was produced from 1954 to 1956. When it was first introduced, the Baby gained almost instant success and became the "must have" typewriter for novelists, celebrities, reporters, and journalists of the time, the beautiful lines of the Hermes Baby changed typewriter design forever.

The typewriter has been cleaned and is in full working condition with a new ribbon fitted. There is paint loss to the space bar from wear and the case is in vintage condition with some creasing to the left-hand side. Ribbons are readily available for sale on the internet to allow continued use. See photos for full condition report.
